Hello, my name is Rebecca Clark and I am a senior Marketing major with an emphasis in Sales, and a minor in Social Entrepreneurship. I have the distinct pleasure to serve as the Director of Governmental and Academic Affairs for the 2013-14 academic year.

For the past two years, I’ve sat on the Student Association Senate and gained interest in becoming a Director to better serve the student body. Last semester I served as the Legislative Director of the Senate and worked hand-in-hand with the Executive Branch to represent the student voice to the University and DeKalb community. I sit on many University and Community committees in order to make sure the student voice is heard on a University level as well as throughout DeKalb. I sit on University Council as well as attending DeKalb City Council meetings.

As well as being involved in the student government, I am heavily involved in the College of Business. I am a member of the Professional Business Fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi. I also am involved in Junior Achievement and volunteer in many other organizations throughout DeKalb.

I believe that for too many years DeKalb and NIU have considered themselves as two different communities. I am very dedicated to the potential for students at NIU in bringing together a communiversity. My main goal in this position is to better the relationship between NIU and DeKalb in order to take steps in becoming a unified community.
